Jack London actually died November 22, 1916 (aged 40). I am not sure if that changes the date of this film or just the title.

Interesting reel with Jack London just fooling around with horses and such. This film says it was made 3 days before his death. Surprising, since he's so young. I mean, I have no idea how Jack London died.. (it doesn't say how in the newsreel).. Let's look it up... Oy, guess he really wasn't as good inside as he looked outside!
